I've had this golden pothos for a little over two months. After a few days, I noticed a brown spot on one of the leaves. I trimmed those leaves off but the spots continue to develop. I water when the soil is dry. I initially had it in a space with lower light but I moved it after a month and it now gets bright, indirect light for most of the day. That hasn't seemed to affect the brown spots. I'd appreciate any advice! Thanks!

The leaf spotting is limited so don't overreact. It may be reacting to some minor root damage done during repotting.

The bright indirect light is fine.

Let the top three-quarters-inch of soil get dry to your touch before watering just enough that it reaches that same level of dryness again in about a week. Experiment a bit to determine what the right amount of water is.
